  1. The only lame thing was they used the “This is Carrie Underwood, etc” that I have heard used on stations for years. What they should have donewas have those saying “This Carrie Underwood on 94-7, This is Toby Keith on 94-7, etc.


    • I assume Cumulus was trying to keep the format choice under wraps. If they’d told too many agents, recording engineers, and celebrities, the cat would’ve inevitably hopped out of the bag.

      I suspect more specific IDs will be on the way.

      The true tragedy will be the loss of 83 unique country stations, including a legendary station of 20+ years in my city — which will be stamped with the souless national “NASH” brand.


  2. Production was predictable and pedestrian. I always wince when new stations try so hard to image themselves as part of the fabric of the market. It comes off especially in this case as fabricated. The self-congratulatory read is so typical of radio’s old and worn ideas, not focused on the listener but on other radio people.
